Stratos Idreos, Gordon McKay Professor of Computer Science, was awarded the Capers W. McDonald and Marion K. McDonald Award for Excellence in Mentoring and Advising.
The award was established by Capers and Marion McDonald in 2008. It recognizes leaders in engineering and applied sciences who, as exemplary mentors and advisors, have significantly and consistently supported the personal and professional development of others.
Idreos was recognized for his “unmatched track record in mentoring advanced undergraduate students” and consistently highly rated teaching. A role model of the practice of academic research, his nominators noted that he “has mentored full classes of undergraduates to incredible research achievements, and many of them have gone on to future research endeavors deeply appreciative of Stratos’s time and caring engagement.”
Idreos directs the Data Systems Laboratory at SEAS. His lab is currently developing a self-designing data engine to accelerate research and improve productivity, a data storage system that can change shapes based on hardware and workload, and a program that accelerates data science pipelines and makes data science more intuitive and interactive.
